His Arm Pulled Back...

His arm pulled back
then extended with a clenched fist
a hard swing swung and missed
Again his arm is pulled back
extended with a clenched fist
only thing different from this time is he didn’t miss
She falls to the floor
filled with animosity and fear
splat, to the floor falls a tear
His hands over his head like he was shocked
when really she was more shocked than he
He kissed her on the lips which dry blood remained
still emotionally she was in pain
until he got on his knees and revealed a ring
although he said he'd never do that again,
she should have predicted the life her future would bring
that is, before she said yes.
